Windows 7: Need help recovering email files

Need help recovering email files

The upgrade from Vista to Win7 has gone smoothly with one exception:
I have not been able to recover my email files in Windows Live Mail, even though the contact list transferred smoothly, as did the inbox contents.

Can someone tell me how to recover the email files?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you, MYZR7, however, the instructions appear to be written for a "pre-upgrade" situation, since it requires the use of Vista desktop, etc.

I've already performed the upgrade so I need instructions that cover email file recovery after-the-fact.

I've spent a lot of time trying to find a forum that would cover this but have not succeeded as yet.

Still need help with this, please.

Just skip steps 1 and 2 and when you import the mail, import it from your backup instead.

You can search your computer for Windows Live Mail as that is the folder mail is stored.

Recovering deleted files
I know it is a long shot, but I had a paper I did for school back in December of 2009, and I deleted it from my computer after I turned it in. I now lost that original copy I got back, and I need the original document. Is there anyway to recover a word document from just before Christmas?
